On the lighter Side:-Movies- The taking of Pelham 123
John Travolta stars as a criminal out to extort 10 Million dollars from New York and is only interested in talking to a train dispatcher (played by Denzel Washington). The movie is action packed by foul mouthed with explicit language delivered by John Travolta. John is very calculated and creepy here with equal brilliance performance by Denzel but it can’t over come the shadow of label of being a remake (although it is said that they did change some stuff). Overall a suspenseful movie but if you really want to watch it then I would rather prefer The taking of Pelham One two three (with Robert Shaw and Walter Mathau-1974)- a brilliant and far superior movie with a surprise ending. This movie rated R with action and language- recommended with reservations.
